Premier League table predicted: Supercomputer reveals final standings – Chelsea ninth | Football | Sport


Premier League action took a breather over the international break, with a frenetic four gameweeks of action having thrown up plenty of thrills and spills already.

Manchester United hammered Chelsea 4-0 on the opening weekend but suffered a shock defeat to Crystal Palace while VAR caused controversy as Manchester City and Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw.

Liverpool are currently sitting pretty at the top of the table after a perfect record of four wins, although the Reds have managed just one clean sheet so far.

Reigning champions City are two points further back but have scored 14 goals already this campaign, with Raheem Sterling grabbing five in his first three games while Sergio Aguero has six.

Elsewhere, there have been surprisingly strong start from Leicester and the aforementioned Eagles with the two clubs sitting third and fourth in the table respectively.

Arsenal are fifth ahead of Everton and West Ham while Manchester United lead Tottenham and newly-promoted Sheffield United.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are currently way down in 11th, and things aren’t expected to get much better for the Blues according to Football Web Pages.

Their supercomputer has generated a final Premier League table based on the percentage likelihood of each possible result in every fixture, recalculating after every top-flight goal.

This unique method predicts Chelsea will only climb as high as ninth at the end of the campaign, partly down to an abysmal away record that sees them pick up just one more win on the road.

Newcastle, Brighton and Watford are the unlucky trio predicted to drop through the trapdoor into the Championship, with the Hornets calculated to win just once despite the return of Quique Sanchez Flores.

Bournemouth and Norwich just about secure survival while Leicester, Spurs and United all bag qualify for Europe.

As for the overall honours, Manchester City are predicted to amass a mammoth total of 108 points, beating Liverpool to the title by three after a costly 2-1 defeat at the Etihad in November.
